Description

Nanotechnology, Science, and Applications

This course will introduce students to the science behind many nanoscale phenomena. Following an overview of the fundamental concepts of nanoscience and nanotechnology, numerous case studies will be presented that demonstrate the impact of the nanoscale on various technical features. It will be discussed technologies that are based on these occurrences.

STUDENTS IN ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE ARE THE TARGET AUDIENCE.
